What's scarier
than Halloween?

Real spreadsheet stories.

Sharing horror tales around the campfire is fun for Halloween, but not for business. Nothing sends a shiver down our spines quite like small businesses' horror experiences with spreadsheets. Time and again, we see spreadsheet errors costing businesses big and studies have shown that nearly 88 percent of spreadsheets contain errors. Would you still want to trust a solution that is riddled with inefficiency?

Do you have a spreadsheet horror story to share with us? We're all ears.

Top reasons why spreadsheets are a real horror
for small businesses


Killed my productivity


Poor pipeline visibility


Error-prone data


More manual data entry

We ran a Twitter poll asking people why they moved away from spreadsheets and the results are clear. Spreadsheets are insufficient for small businesses that want to actually excel. They deserve a better solution to help them better do their jobs.

These experiences are scary for a reason: because they aren't imaginary.

Our clients still get nightmares when they recall their spreadsheet experiences. So, as a responsible business, we think it's our duty to keep every business informed about our clients' precautionary tales of horror.
